Major NSV day :)
Two posts in one day This one’s worth it (to me, anyways, I’m PSYCHED!!!!)
Ok, again, I feel really, well, stupid over the whiny post from the other day…things have really been looking up since then, and I need to realize there are going to be days like that, and they, too, shall pass…cliche?? Yeah, but so true…
Today, I was told by my mom AND my husband that I’m looking ‘thin’…what a great word…’thin’…Put me in a great mood Then I got home tonight, after the 4 of us going out to dinner at Applebee’s (love love LOVE them for their Weight Watchers menu) for a late birthday dinner for me It was so nice…anyway, we got home and I helped Clint feed all the animals, and decided I wanted to go for a bike ride…I have been bustin’ to get my bike out…so tonight I finally did it. I went inside and got changed, and saw my side view in the mirror, and I wasn’t completely disgusted with myself…I’m sure alot of it is more positive thinking right now than anything, but I was impressed with the changes I even saw So Clint stayed with the girls for me, and I went on my ride. I started out and did my usual 2 mile route that I do when I bike or walk. I live in a great neighborhood that I can go one mile to the end of the nearest side road, and 1 mile back. When I got back to my driveway, I was standing at the end of my driveway with my bike and grabbing a drink of water before I headed in, and I thought “I don’t think I’m done yet!!”…I went the opposite way down the road and took another nice side road near us for a great ride It started getting a little too close to dark for me to be that far away from home, so I headed back. On the way back, I had a dog run with me the entire way home. So when I got home, I jumped in my car, with the dog, reset my mileage thingee, and wanted to see how far I had gone on my bike, while trying to find this dog’s home. Dropped off the dog and headed back home…I was so tickled to see my mileage thingee
I did 4.2 miles on that trip alone!!!!!!!!!! So that, plus the 2 miles I did from my normal route, I did 6.2 miles on my bike!!!!!! I can honestly say I have NEVER ridden my bike that far since I was a kid. I’m SO proud of myself Feels amazing. I did the total ride in about 35 minutes, so that is just about 12 MPH. I got tired, and my legs got a bit sore but it was the best hurt I have felt in forever. I checked on Fitday and I burned just over 300 calories on the ride That is what I would do on Lippy in 15 minutes, but it was awesome to be OUTSIDE…the breeze was so refreshing and the new scenery was enough to keep my mind off of my screaming leg muscles. Thinking back to when I began this journey, there is NO WAY my body could have handled that kind of ride…

HI- WANTED TO KNOW IF YOU STILL HAD THE PERFECT HARD BOILED EGG RECIPE FROM ELIZABETH? IF YOU COULD SEND IT TO ME THAT WOULD BE GREAT0 KAREN
I have been coming to your site for a very long time now. I feel like you are a part of my family or something. I always go to your site and check on ya and see how things are going, if you dont post for a while…i get worried. It weird!! I think it may be becuase you are so inspirational. You do all of the things I wish I had willpower or strength to do. I really am so very proud of you. This is a very hard thing to do and yet you stick it out through thick and thin, good times and bad, you always bounce back and continue on your journey. I have no problems believing that you will make your goal!!
Awwwww!! Don’t you just love that comment? "Thin" is the best word a dieter can hear (as long as it’s about us dieters and not the thin barbie doll girl who doesn’t even break a sweat on the treadmill!) You earned your NSV!! Hugs and kisses!!!
And, way to go on the bike ride!! I’m so proud of you, Sweety!
